Walker Job Numbers Called Into Question
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel obtained a slideshow showing Gov. Scott Walker received information that job data released over the summer, days before a special election, was questionable.
Gov. Scott Walker's administration may have inflated job numbers over the summer, just days before a special election to recall Republican senators, according to a story in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Walker held a press conference in July announcing 9,500 new jobs in Wisconsin - a remarkable number considering the entire country created 18,000 jobs in July.
The newspaper obtained a report from the state labor department calling the results "very questionable."
